Maker ๐Ÿ”จ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช Current: Catsnatcher - Amazon Niche Finder ๐Ÿ“ˆ

Hey Product Hunters!

I made this new thing called Catsnatcher. Here's the problem I had and the solution I thought of:

๐Ÿค” Problem

Catsnatcher was created because I was looking to get into Amazon Private Label selling earlier this year. I found other product research tools useful for when I had an idea I wanted to research, but Iโ€™m not terribly original, so pretty much everything I thought to search had already been crowded out. Also other tools focused on single listing-level metrics rather than showing me the stats for an entire niche.

So what do I want? As all Amazonโ€™s data is public (including indicative sales levels via BSR), I figured there should be a way just to absorb everything, categorise it into niches and use this to find the best possible options rather than starting with a guess.

๐Ÿ›  Solution

I soon realised that there are so many subcategories aligning to different products - the perfect way of structuring listing data to product ideas. I decided to take all Amazonโ€™s data for each of these 40,000+ categories and analyse it to show how profitable, competitive, scalable each of them are.

It covers all metrics from profitability, sales levels, reviews, listing quality all the way to how many variants and accessories niches have. The beta is stored in a Google Sheet to allow for simple sorting, filtering and searching of metrics. There is a tab with all the subcategories and one with the top item listings within each for when you want to dive deeper into a niche.

Let me know what you think!

๐Ÿ’– Thanks to my Amazon Private Label friends who egged me on, big shout out to Ria for posting and everyone else who helped in any way!
@d12zy Was not familiar with Amazon private labeling. Suggest adding something about a bit about what it is for those unfamiliar.
@ColleenMBrady Thanks for your comment, Colleen. Will definitely do this

I wasn't able to adjust my initial comment, but for anyone wondering Amazon Private Label essentially means a kind of Amazon selling where you make a whole new product, as opposed to reselling someone else's (Wholesale or Merchant). As Amazon has become more competitive this is where the big profit lies in the platform.
